"There is no government-approved technology to conduct roadside tests for marijuana impairment, and experts argue urine and blood tests are not useful because regular cannabis users can test positive days — even weeks — after the last use."

"How do you deal with that?" Lamarre asks. "Is there a testing technology that is coming around the corner?"

This is Chief of defence staff Gen. Jonathan Vance problem. Let him look after this, that's why he gets paid the big bucks!

"Lamarre said he doesn't believe there will be a spike in marijuana usage among members of the Armed Forces when it becomes legal. Most people who join the military, he said, join it to do challenging things, such as flying planes and helicopters, and anything that keeps them away from that work tends to be shunned."

Good luck with that mindset!

Once this becomes Legal most of the Country is going to be high as a kite. Do these people really think people are going to hold back on smoking this stuff before getting behind the wheel? OR from their breaks from work? There's a difference between medical usage as prescribed and just down right smoking it for recreation purposes, they say this will tackle the illegal drug activity, and keep it out of the hands of minors? Who believes that? This is a governmental money tax grab implementation period!
